So if we dry up all the pools, or at least keep them bucket sized, things would be fine! (I'm taking about #19 of course)

Wys, I doubt the spider story is true. Check out snopes for a smilar statistic. I'm sure we all eat a few bugs (motorcylclists maybe a few more than the rest of us) But not spiders.

*pours Wysi a soothing cup of green tea*

(heh's green from the spider venom I mixed in it)

1. The other 75% were rubbernecking at ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on US Rte. 294 at 2:45 this afternoon.

2. True, but before that we got St. Urho's Day off.

3. And you don't?

4. They spend the other 1,335 eating what's left of my yard's ground cover.

5. And they're all tuned to "American Idol".

6. Everybody knows that!

7. There's an easy blue joke here.

8. Dave Matthews' tour bus also avoids Chicago since dumping hundreds of pounds of "human waste" over a Chicago bridge a few summers ago. It landed on a crowded tour boat.

9. Moving ambulances = kinky sex.

10. Another bacteria control tip from scat (no pun intended): Keep the lid down when you flush.

11. And you can't?

12. So THAT was the weird smell in my first Chicago apartment!

13. Now it's known as Elixer of the Gods.

14. I am 110% certain of that.

1. wys, you're right about the sidebar thing. I eventually figured it out but gave credit to martinis because they have done so much for me.

2. I tried, oh how I tried to find a blindingly yellow blog on blogspot. But no dice.

3. Fascinatingly (a total jest word when I use it), this and several other blogspot templates were designed by a high school friend, Jeffrey Zeldman. I'll blog about that someday when I've hit a serious dry spell.

4. I'm so proud! I got my first blog hate mail! Read it in the "I Don't Want to Believe" entry in Ups N Downz comments.

5. Ta for now.

19. Sharks never outgrow their environment, either. You can keep them in a goldfish bowl if you get them as baby sharks.. they'll never get too big.
